The reason I chose the video below is simple, I wanted to draw attention to the species mentioned in the video, because when they’re gone, they’ll be gone forever and there will be no bringing them back.
You see, that’s the thing about human beings, we may be the dominate species on the planet, but it is in our nature to destroy without thinking. Since the 16th century, humans have driven at least 680 vertebrate species to extinction and those same researchers estimated that approximately 1 million animal and plant species could die out, many “within decades”, that sounds terrible doesn’t it?
That’s why conservation is so important, since we are the dominate species on the planet, we owe it to the earth, to preserve as many different species as possible.
Now before you start thinking I’m just another one of those “tree-hugger, peta-types”, I’m not. Because I do hunt and fish, I’m a firm believer in following the rules when I do go out in to the wilderness.
And the one thing that I cannot stand are people that poach (illegally hunt or fish) wildlife of any kind. But as long as there is a market for different animal products, there will be those that have no regard for the rules and laws that protect certain fish and animal species.
That’s why it’s important for all of us to do our part, to make sure that future generations will not loose-out, what some people take for granted.
The animals we see around us are only 10 percent of all species that have ever lived on earth. Of these animals, some have survived the various shifts of earth’s geology through evolutionary adaptation and managed to survive extinction for millions of years.
You won’t believe how long some creatures have been roaming the earth, but you will find when you join us now and watch 15 Ancient Creatures that are still alive.
Just think, if we don’t insure the survival of some of the animals mentioned in the video below, once they’re gone, there’s no bringing them back and THAT would be a crime against nature.
So, climb into your time machine and get ready for some fascinating stuff.
